Fairy Gardens {Curated Hometalk Board}

With spring just around the corner, flowers, herbs and container gardens are on my mind!  
One of my favorite kinds of container gardening is a Fairy Garden.  In fact, one of my most popular posts is my Fairy Garden in a Container
Liz at Hometalk contacted me and ask me to curate a board on Fairy Gardens and I was more than happy to comply.  If you are not on Hometalk, what are you waiting for?  It's a great place to get a lot and I do mean a LOT of information all in one place.  Hometalk also offer advice from professionals and has places to ask questions and get answers.  Hometalk is also a great place to grow your blog.  I get great traffic from Hometalk's website and from their Facebook page.  If you don't have an account there, it is super easy to set one up, so get on it! 
There are some great posts on Fairy Gardens at Hometalk that will give you tons of tips and tricks.   One of the most important ones I've learned is to be sure to allow enough room for your Fairy Garden to grow and I'll show you a before and after pic of mine at the end of this post.
The graphics people at Hometalk made this great pinnable graphic for this post.  You can just click anywhere on the board below and see more about these gorgeous Fairy Gardens at Hometalk.

Aren't these Fairy Gardens wonderful and creative?  I think what amazes me the most is the different types of containers people use and the clever things that they make to put in them.  That little blue miniature chandelier is just fabulous!  The suitcase as a container is so fun! 
Just be sure to leave plenty of room for your garden to grow because they are happy little things and can really expand in their containers.  Here is a picture of mine at the beginning of the season and towards the end.
Now head on over to my Hometalk Fairy Garden Board and check out all the tips and tricks for making your own fabulous Fairy Garden!
Thank you Hometalk for this wonderful opportunity!
